Japanese racehorse Buchiko has developed a huge following with fans all over the world – but not because of how she’s been performing as a racehorse. Her popularity comes down to her unique and rare coat.
Buchiko has an interesting heritage: her father is American hall-of-famer Sunday Silence and her mother is the completely-white Shiryukihime (which means snow white). Despite both horses having had successful racing careers, it’s their offspring’s coat that is drawing attention worldwide.
‘Buchiko’ is a Japanese name that means ‘dappled child’ – a reference to the patterns that have made her famous. The spotted coat that has inspired so much adoration is a rare genetic result of her parents. When Buchiko races, she is recorded as a ‘white’ horse but her gaining popular suggestions she much more than that.
Building the Ballarat Airfield
The Ballarat Airfield was a unique project for us. Although we’ve built hundreds of hangars for private aeroplanes, this was our first time building airport infrastructure.
The project came together incredibly well, and we’re happy to have built something that will be used by the flying community for years to come.
See some photos of the project below:
